AbstractIn this paper, we have presented preliminary analyses on the comparison between societal engagement through formal interactions with non-academic stakeholders and altmetric indicators. This study makes various contributions. First, it is one of the few analyses on altmetrics adopting an authorcentric approach instead of an article-centric approach (Ke et al., 2017; Torres-Salinas & Milanés-Guisado, 2014; Robinson-Garcia et al., forthcoming). Second, it discusses the perception that social media mentions to scientific literature signal broader forms of impact by linking altmetric coverage with survey data on formal interactions of researchers. While the results presented point out towards an absence of relation between altmetric coverage of researchers and the number of types of nonacademic partners with whom they interact, more in depth analyses are needed and further refinements will be applied analysing the relation between interactions with specific partners and mentions from specific social media platforms, controlling by fields and academic rank.
